Whale Wars

This is my tribute to the Animal Planet series Whale Wars, which I'm currently watching. I used the most relevant photograph I have and edited in the whale, since I don't have any of actual whales.

I believe in what they fight for and appreciate their painful efforts to stop whaling.
Gradient mapped the photograph and hand-drew the whale (I'll probably touch up the whale soon, I just put it together on a whim), then used a GIMP tool to create the abstract designs. Arranged layers accordingly.
(This is actually Tybee Island in Georgia, near Savannah. It's a beautiful, clean beach.)

WOW! Great job! The whale is a tad bit sketchy but the layering with the background looks very cool!
